On Saturday, Leon and I ventured out to Dalston for a barbecue and to watch the Eurovision Song Contest. Umm, yeah, I’m glad we watched that with other people. Otherwise it would not have been that enjoyable.

This morning Leon asked me if I could describe Eurovision to someone in the US now. After talking about it and throwing a few ideas around, I came up with this definition of EuroVision:

Eurovision: A high school talent show gone bad; usually with a lot of expensive sets and really bad gaudy costumes; winners are chosen not necessarily by talent or ability to perform and sing, but by popularity and political reasons. This cannot be compared to American Idol or X-factor.
